Are there any good half marathon plans out there which stretch over 6 months or so rather than the typical 8 weeks? Having just spent 8 weeks getting to 10k, which was quite a struggle, I don't feel confident that in another 8 I could manage a half marathon which I was originally aiming for. I would rather wait until spring and be more prepared. Do I need to come up with my own plan or are there some longer-term ones out there somewhere?
